Neuromuscular Therapy

A highly effective treatment for the elimination of pain. The therapist specifically palpates affected soft tissue areas to determine if the muscles are harboring trigger points or have nerve impingement possibilities. When affected muscles are located, cross fiber friction and acupressure techniques are used to release trigger points and break up adhesions, therefore decreasing pain.




Flexibility Conditioning

Active Assisted Stretching, state of the art stretching techniques, pioneered by Aaron Mattes, world-renowned Kinesiology's with over 30 years of development studies and research. Active Assisted Stretching allows systematic relief of tight muscles, tendons and connective tissue. Those isolated flexibility techniques are done in 8 to 10 repetition sets, holding the stretch for no more than 2 seconds per repetition. The patient is actively contracting opposing muscles to ensure ultimate stretch release and safety. Ideal for those who suffer with chronic pain due to sports injuries or common degenerative conditions. Active Isolated Stretching will enhance athletic performance, prevent injuries, increase range of motion and rehabilitate muscle groups.


Myofascial Release


These are subtle deep tissue massage techniques that help release facial retrictions or holding patterns, which ultimately play a major role in dealing with chronic pain conditions.





Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) Vodder Method

Manual Lymphatic Drainage is a technique used to encourage lymph flow in the body.  A  healthy 
lymph flow supports the body's immune system in fighting off toxins.  MLD is a detoxifying massage treatment widely used in medical spas.  The pressure applied is very light and gentle (1mm under the skin).

Our Certified Manual Lymphatic Drainage
Therapists specialize in Pre and Post Op lymphatic therapy for Plastic Surgery, Oncology, and Lymphedema Management. It is often combined with Therapeutic Massage Modalities.

 MDL is recommended before and after surgery (especially cosmetic, liposuction, reconstructive surgery, repairs scar tissue, bruising and edema). Vodder Method is a non-invasive holistic approach to accelerate healing.

Prenatal Massage

Specific techniques are used to sooth and relieve aches and pains associated with pregnancy, aiding in relaxation and promoting circulation for our Mommies-to-Be. Please consult with your Doctor prior to booking an appointment. Not recommended for women in their first trimester.




Reflexology

Refloxology uses pressure point therapy on the foot reflex zones which correspond to regions of the body and vital organs. Stimulating these points assists the body in healing itself while eliminating toxins, improving circulation and reducing stress.
